A not so hidden Gem of a RV Park

I found a great place to "park" the Alfa while we drive the Jeep to Berkeley on Friday. I have to give the Flag City RV Resort, in Lodi CA, a very high rating! Minutes from I-5, the paved, level sites are easy to get into. Although the spaces are somewhat close together, there are enough trees to provide a bit of shade without interfering with the satellite reception. Our Passport America discount made the price nice at $26 per night, for a pull through with full hook-ups! If you are driving up I-5, it is a good place to overnight. 

Once we were settled in our spot, Craig and I worked together to put up a sign on the back of the Alfa. 

I handed him the letters.

RVers love to share their experiences. While we were putting it up, one of our neighbors, who was walking her dog, stopped and asked if we had ever been to Alaska. She then told us a little about her trip there. Cliff, the man next door, also started a conversation about Alaska, and we ended up chatting for some time, about a lot of other things. 

I wonder how many conversations and honks or waves our sign will generate.  I thought "Alaska or bust!" although very traditional, would tempt fate.

So far the weather has been clear and sunny. The forecast is for a few more days of the same before some rain hits. Our plan is to get over the Shasta Mountain pass while it is still dry. We expect Oregon to be wet at this time of year.


  1. Great sign. I'm excited to follow along on your journey. We stay at Flag City every year coming and going from Southern California for our winter hot springs trip. Have never seen it with leaves on the trees!

  2. Jeez, we are thinking about Alaska this summer also. Maybe we will " See Ya!" on the road.

  3. Now that seems like an exciting journey you have ahead if you, can't wait for more pictures.

  4. Nice to see you folks back on the road again.

  5. Waiting to hear more about your travels and I'm certain that You'll get a lot of horns egging you on.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time

  6. Hope to see you there. We're with the Loosey Goosey so we will have orange on our ladder and there's an orange chicken on our antenna.

  7. Love the sign, hope you have a great trip.

  8. Love the sign, hope you have a great trip.

  9. Good idea about the sign. Alaska is amazing. Don't forget to stop at Laird Hot Springs, a free provincial park. I bet you have already heard about it.
